Bicentennial 2018

Lewisburg has a number of homes still occupied that date back to the 1800s. One example is the “Hoerner House”, also referred to as the “Wedding Cake House”. It was built in 1850 and is highlighted by a beautiful spiral stairway leading to the second floor. It still stands at its original site on Commerce Street, which was then called Main Street and was part of the unincorporated town of Euphemia.

Girls, Girls, Girls

Holidays are a great time for relaxing and, if we are lucky, spending time with family. Janet and I both got lucky over the Fourth. Janet’s sister, Rita, came down from Michigan and my son, Kevin, and his family were here from Texas. Lots and lots of catching up to do on all sides. Why can’t time pass as quickly in a dentist’s office as it does when visiting with family? Too soon they are on their way back home.

In closing

“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.” — Leo Tolstoy

This past week has been straining for our country. Everyone has opinions and everyone’s opinion is important. Wouldn’t it be great if all could turn to the Same page and stand together in understanding and harmony?

‘There is spirit; there is grace in our peaceful country place.’ See you ‘Around the Burg’!

With Janet & Judy
